Nemesia strumosa ‘Carnival Mix’ / Cape Jewels / Seeds

A compact and long flowering annual from the Cape Floral Kingdom, with a brilliant mix of large flowers from June to August/September.  The plants grow 20-30cm in height, and the flowers cover the plant entirely when in bloom. Plants do well in cottage gardens, pots and baskets, and are effective ground cover.


Nemesia likes full sun or part shade and rich well drained soil.

 

Pack of approx 500 seeds.  Sow in spring or autumn.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Conditions  Sun to part shade and rich well drained soils
Sow Sow in spring or autumn in a tray or cells of moist seed compost.  Cover lightly with compost or vermiculite and keep at 15-20°C. Germination takes 2-4 weeks.  Transplant young seedlings into small pots and then outside into the ground or into containers, after hardening off and after the last frost.     Keep autumn sown seedlings in a greenhouse over winter, protected from frost.  These seedlings tend to flower earlier than spring sown plants.
Grow Pinch out the growing tips of young plants to encourage bushiness.  Water plants in dry spells.  Feed fortnightly if growing in containers.  Protect from greenfly.  Remove plants in autumn after flowering has finished.
